Overview of Accountability: A Public Law Analysis of Government by Contract

Many government bodies relate to each other through 'contracts'. But these contracts are not, in general, regulated or enforced by the law. Drawing on the results of a case-study of NHS contracts, this book identifies significant problems faced by the parties to internal government contracts, many of which stem from the lack of legal regulation. This study uses a novel public law analysis to suggest ways of making internal contracts work more fairly and effectively.
